Bart, go to your room!
Not a chance! the military is designed to funtion as a folding military knife. It is one of a vary few folder that actually fits my oversized paws, particularly after the last dozen years or so of High Impact Activity. Yes, I am going to Kill a buffalo on the way to the car, wanna come? There are plenty of smaller blades on the market already and the integral guard and pommel retainer on the Military will be severely diminshed should it be made smaller. Just my little ole opinion here and seemed like a thread I wouldn't screw around with too much. I like smaller folders for carry as they don't scare the clients, but I need a bigger handle I guess.
